If you've been waiting anxiously to see what's happening with my collaboration quilt with Kathy Loomis, Brown Planet, here's where I am now. If you are new to my blog, you can read about it here. Somehow between quilt shows and openings and gardening and other stuff, I managed to finish the semi-sphere section of the quilt. It may look easy to you, but believe me, it was quite challenging. I did more ripping out, recutting, re-sewing, etc. than I care to think about. Ignore the wobbly edges, it has to be trimmed, especially the left side.
Now I have to work on the background, to make the quilt into a rectangle. It will consist of many, many little units of pieced strips in pastel neutral colors. The strips are about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch in width. Kathy gave me some, but I have to make so many more. I ordered a lot of solids online and was able to get some perfect matches, but not nearly enough. She had sewn some of the units together, as you can see here, and I will have to take her units apart so that I can intersperse them with my units and have it look cohesive. Does that make sense?
I'll post again when I have more to show. I have a lot of gardening to do, so this may take awhile. Yesterday was rainy all day so I had a lot of studio time.
Thank you for stopping by my blog. Comments are always welcome.
